Serendipidy, it's hard to imagine a more detailed BCNH - WOW. 

FWIW the last two shots I posted are American Redstart female.

Few of mine... (heavy crop on 2nd and 3rd pic). I desperately need a 2x III extender
5D3 and 70-200 II (no extender)

Had my camera next to me while drinking coffee in our backyard this morning when she shows up.  Female Costa's Hummingbird.

Hate to sound like a broken record (long long ago there were vinyl recordings that spun on a turntable and early ones were so fragile they could be cracked and repeat-skip every revolution ;))  but it's so helpful if you could just make sure that we at least know the camera and lens you're using and more if you can afford a minute or so of your time.  Many look to these forums for help deciding what to buy next.   :)

Point taken (well taken!) about not including the camera and lens for my shot.  It's a 5Diii with a 400 DO and a 1.4X extender.  This isn't a lens forum so I won't say too much except that I think that the 400DO is one of the best kept secrets of Canon's lenses.  It is light, relatively compact, and ultra-sharp, and obviously mates well with the 1.4X extender.  When it came out about 10 years ago it got a very bad reputation, but if it had bugs back then it sure doesn't today.  I love that lens.

Thanks, Jack. I know almost nothing about identifying N. Am. birds, but I spent 15 minutes Googling grey and yellow birds of Alberta after I read your post. The best I could match was the American Redstart or some type of warbler. I thought there was too much red in the Redstart (I didn't think about a female though), so I didn't hazard a guess. :)

Thanks Steven, I don't like to sound preachy but I'm pretty sure a fair number of participants or skulkers appreciate hearing the feedback on what you think of a lens/camera even if it is just a bird thread, and the proof in the eating of the pudding, by way of the shot.  Without that, it's just another pretty picture.

I wish I had humming birds in my backyard. Great shot. I am suffering from white lens shoulder and would not mind a light lens. Here is a 100% crop from my 5DIII with the 300mm f/2.8 II + 2xTC III at f/5.6, iso 320 1/6400. It is so sharp you can see the dragonfly in the beak of the little egret at about 40 metres, taken yesterday.
